Local mission takes on a wide range of shapes. There are many ways in which we seek to demonstrate the love of Christ to others in our local town community. We want people in our town to realise that they are not alone and that we would love to help if we can.
One of the areas we have a passion for is youth. Have a look at the Youth page on this web site to get an idea of the programs we offer for youth.
From time to time we offer special support courses for the community which may range from family support, marriage courses and specific courses for those wanting to know more about what it means to follow Jesus Christ.
Totara Springs is a large facility operating just outside the town. The camp was established through the vision and efforts of some of the Open Brethren churches in the Waikato area, including Matamata Bible Church.
We have had a long association with the camp and are grateful to God for the tremendous work we see going on there especially among the children.

We have supported various New Zealand wide mission efforts.
Presently our main area of support is Mobile Mission Maintenance (MMM). MMM provide support for building projects here in New Zealand and in some areas overseas.
We are a group of people who have a genuine concern for world missions through financial or practical support.
Currently we are partnering with others to support a missionary family overseas and it has been exciting to hear how they have been making a difference in people's lives.
A number of short term projects have been completed at Fiji with opportunity for others to take part in the future.
